Step 7: After the reading is completed, the drive ejects automatically. DVD-Cloner will prompt you to insert a blank DVD±R/RW (DL). Please insert a blank DVD±R/RW (DL) and click “OK”. Then it will begin to burn. If you have selected to burn the DVD movie to the hard disk drive, this step will be skipped.

If you’d like your computer to shut down after the copy is completed, please close all the other programs and select “Shut down the computer when the copy is finished”.

If you have a DVD reader and a DVD burner, please insert the source DVD into the reader and select the movie you’d like to burn. Make sure the movie information appears in the information bar. Then insert a blank DVD±R (DL) into the DVD burner and click on the “Start” button. DVD-Cloner will automatically begin to read and burn, and won’t prompt you to insert a DVD±R (DL). If you insert a DVD±RW (DL), it will erase the disc first and then begin burning.

Step 8: Completed!
